Dramatic location for a desert experience”

Location; design; staff; a great match for the environment.

Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort is a superb way to get an authentic taste of one of the world's great natural environments. It is far enough away to feel a little remote, but the journey is not taxing. Surrounded by dunes, the hotel has been designed with a real feel for heritage, custom and environment. Guest are free to walk off into the surrounding area, which is accessible and safe if a little common sense is used. Rooms are extremely comfortable, and staff well trained, friendly and natural. Whe we had a problem, they were efficiently helpful. The pool area is beautifully designed. Food is good, though options a little limited with one of us vegetarian. Breakfast superb. We were in a Garden Room - which is lovely unless you have a noisy family next door. The hotel were very accommodating in moving us. For guaranteed privacy, the balcony room is better.

5 star resort in a unique location.”

Quality of the facilities, staff service, choice of restaurants.

A 5 star resort 200kms from Abu Dhabi in the Liwa Desert. Exceptional service levels and stunning views of the desert make this a unique location for a no expense spared holiday. The facilities were outstanding, especially the comfort of the beds and linen, and the De Luxe Terraces were huge, being as big as the room itself. Beautiful pool with attentive staff, a choice of restaurants (although expensive for Westerners)and all the attractions of the desert make Qasr Al Sarab a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Staff, Great Desert Location”

We just spent 2 days/1 night earlier this week, and I have to say that the facility and the staff were both outstanding. Many resorts around the world could learn from the training program Qasr al Sarab obviously puts its associates through. Every interaction across every area of the resort - and we tried just about everything - was exceptional and world-class. I highly recommend both the sunset camel ride and the sunrise dune bashing activities. They are expensive, but well worth it.

Truly, a lifetime experience!”

Qasr al Sarab is much more than just a hotel. It is a real desert experience in the romantic tradition of literature and film. Our eight-year-old son is still talking about the sand dunes, the camels and the French fort-style accommodation. It is not cheap, but the cost is soon forgotten.

One night birthday treat”

The views of the dunes all around the resort; the friendly and helpful staff; spacious and comfortable rooms.

We had a very relaxing overnight stay at Qasr Al Sarab. We enjoyed the poolside food and drinks and had a lovely evening meal. I would have liked to have spent 1 or 2 more nights there in order to do some of the activities and check out the spa. The winding drive leading to the hotel off of the highway gives you the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, which is a welcome change to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Great with some concerns”

Awesome setting, beautiful facilities. However, if after paying $600 a night you want some peace and quiet around the pool forget it. There were many families with small children here... the resort needs to set aside one section of the very large pool as adults only... There were children everywhere.. at the swim up bar too.. very noisy. Secondly, the prices for food and drinks here are astronomical. I paid $32 for a hamburger, and $28 for a shot of tequila. Yes, you are in the middle of the desert, but this is over the top in taking advantage of people.

Fantastic stay with arabic touch”

The hotel is located in the middle of the desert surrounded by big sand dunes with a mythic atmosphere. The hotel and facilities are build in Arabic style. The room we had was clean and very spacious. (room with terrace/balcony) The bathtub was excellent (very big), the view from the balcony was great. The bed/mattress, pillows and duvet were awesome. Best sleep ever. I even considered to buy the brand... You can do many thing around and the pool gives you a relaxed oasis feeling. I can definitely recommend this hotel. Enjoy!

Everything was brilliant from the minute we arrived . The staff, the rooms, the food, the service, cannot fault it, only wish we had spent longer there. We attended the Desert Bedouin for my sisters birthday and the setting was beautiful, the food was delicious, lots of variety and perfectly cooked. The entertainment of a belly dancer was exquisite and the falconry was excellent and such a wonderful experience. The greatest highlight and the most outstanding experience was the Camel Trek - an absolute must, the sunset over the desert was like nothing else I have ever experienced, truly magical. 10/10.

Desert Oasis”

Location, Architecture, Food

This is a special place. The resort feels like an Arabian oasis in the middle of the desert. Although it is a recent construction, it feels authentic and the architecture is amazing, you feel like being in an ancient fortress village. The food choices are all good, sometimes simply too much! Good service and nice activities, but do note that even very young children will have to pay for the activities. Mornings are best when it starts getting hot.

If you've never been to the desert and love comfortable life go there! Amazing dunes and fantastic service are offered by the hotel. We actually felt as if we were leaving close friends and family when we were checking out: stuff is extremely caring and anticipates all the wishes. Just wondeful.

Great but.....”

Awesome surroundings and beautiful facilities. However, paying $500+ a night I would expect a little peace and quiet around the pool. I know this is not an adults only property, but the pool being so big, could easily have a section for adults only.. There was a kid pool but the kids were all over... It was hard to have a drink at the swim up bar as it was full of loud kids.... Secondly, this place really takes advantage by charging outrageous prices for food and drink... The outdoor dinner, bbq was ok... but not worth $120 per person without alcohol.. just a few salads and grilled kebabs... A hamburger at the pool costs $32 and a can of coke $10, while a shot of tequila - I paid $28.... Keep this in mind when booking this resort... you can easily go bankrupt spending on food and drink.

Desert Oasis”

Service, tranquility, dunes

This desert oasis certainly lives up to it's reputation! The surrounding dune scenery is spectacular & well worth an early morning walk, before it gets too hot. The service & facilities are great, as is the breakfast buffet & fine dining of an evening in the Italian restaurant close to the pool. My wife & I had a lovely entrée & main each, with a bottle of wine, for around AED800. Very relaxing & well worth the trip into the desert - we'd thoroughly recommend it & our only regret was that we didn't get a couples massage.

Amazing resort in an amazing desert location”

We stayed two nights there with my wife and have been blown away by this place. The location is in an amazingly beautiful protected desert area. The dunes are magnificent. Hotel is built in arabian style that suits the place nicely. Everything was great

Exceeded expectations”

I have stayed at several anantaras and generally the quality is excellent... this is probably my favourite stay.. staff, facilities and the general atmosphere was great. Food was top notch, we will be back.. can recommend to anyone for a romantic trip.. especially in a 1 bed pool villa, we felt totally in our own place allowing us to relax. And completely private!

5 Stars!”

Amazing experience!! Dinner at Al Falaj was a great experience. Food was delicious. Staff was incredible. By the pool, staff came around with refreshing drinks, cold towels, and offered to clean our sunglasses. We loved every minute!
